Every week, when I plan out a “1k collection,” I open up InDesign and cut and paste potential artworks until coming up with the perfect arrangement. As a visual person, I want to see the pieces next to one another. I need to reorder them, move them around, and make sure the colors are going to compliment each other, not clash.
Artfully Walls, a new online gallery featuring open edition prints, provides this exact functionality through their website. In my opinion, it’s a tool that every collector, curator, designer, decor-dreamer needs. Their “Design Your Wall” feature allows you to play with and arrange all of the prints and canvases in their inventory. You can swap out sizes and try on frames and mats. On top of that, you can choose a paint color to match your existing walls or experiment with something totally new. Through their mobile app, you can even arrange the art on a photo of your very own wall. The process is effortless and so much fun. Seriously, go check it out right now. Then be sure to come back and admire a “1k collection” guest curated by Artfully Walls co-founder, Shira Galili-Berman. Six (big!) beautiful pieces - one of them already framed - for under $1000!
The theme of Shira’s collection is “Contemporary Breeze,” which she describes as “[creating] light, ease and interest, this collection combines shades of green, golden yellow and pink with the linear and elliptical.” See it here. Enjoy!
